At the AIPAD Photography Show, Bits of Museum Shows, Past and Present

Works by Jessica Eaton and Hannah Whitaker at M+B.

If you haven’t had the chance to see the photography shows that New York museums have staged recently, the Association of International Photography Art Dealers fair, which runs at the Park Avenue Armory through Sunday, offers quite a few opportunities to get up to date, since many of its more than 80 exhibitors have brought works by photographers that have popped up in the city recently. (And, of course, if you have been assiduous in your museum going, you’ll have the chance to revisit work, and perhaps come across a few surprises.) Read More

He has depicted romantic, Old World scenes and dewy-eyed portraits of young men, often topless, his careful handling of pencil and paint obscuring their origins in 1970s and ’80s pornography.
